What is Breast Reduction?

Dr. Hueneke works closely with women who live with breasts that are too large for their frames. Overly large breasts can be cumbersome and these women have a very difficult time finding bras and clothing that fits appropriately. Large breasts are also the root cause of many physical ailments, such as bruising along the bra strap line; pain in the neck, shoulders, upper back and lower back; chafing, and many other issues. A woman who has large breasts carries a few extra pounds of tissue on her body, and this leads to poor posture in almost every daily task.

Breast reduction is performed by making incisions in the breast, typically around the areola and from the bottom of the areola to the breast crease. Some women may require a third incision along the breast crease. Once the incisions are made, Dr. Hueneke removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to reduce the size of the breasts. The areola and nipple may be repositioned as well. Liposuction is often used to refine the shape of the breasts.

What is the Cost of Breast Reduction?

The average cost of breast reduction is  about $8,700, although this does vary by patient. We can discuss the details of your cost for breast reduction at the time of your consultation. For your convenience, Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers financing options for qualified patients.

What Are the Benefits of Breast Reduction?

  • Improves body proportions
  • Clothing and lingerie fits better
  • Reduces, and may eliminate, pain symptoms associated with poor posture and excess breast size

What is the Recovery Time for Breast Reduction?

Dr. Hueneke places a bandage around your breasts to hold the tissues in place and promote proper healing. For the first five to seven days, your breasts are very tender and sensitive to the touch. You will also have bruising and swelling. Dr. Hueneke may recommend medication to help manage your discomfort. Rest is of utmost importance during your initial recovery.

Physical activity is limited for up to one month, and you may need to rest at home for a few days after the surgery. After two to four weeks, your symptoms subside, but you should still be cautious with your activities. Avoid wearing bras with underwires, as this can disrupt the healing of the incisions.

A scar line develops with a pinkish color that gradually changes and fades slightly over the next six to 12 months.

The results of breast reduction are typically long term, but some factors can increase the size of your breasts, such as pregnancy and weight gain.

We start to develop fine lines and wrinkles as we age. Too much exposure to the sun can lead to dark spots or blemishes on the face, and pollutants in the air may also give the skin a dull appearance.
